Three Main Indicators determining Kidney Disease are 1. CREATININE, 2. BLOOD-UREA-NITROGEN (BUN), & 3. GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE (GFR)
Creatine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism. The kidneys filter out most of the creatinine and dispose of it in the urine. If your kidneys are damaged and cannot work normally, the amount of creatinine in your urine goes down while its level in your blood goes up.
2. BLOOD-UREA-NITROGEN (BUN)
BUN is used to aid in determining kidney functioning and usually is compared or obtained along with blood Creatinine levels. If levels are high it is often an indication of impaired kidney functioning. A BUN-to-creatinine ratio can help your doctor check for problems, such as dehydration, that may cause abnormal BUN and creatinine levels.
3. GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE (GFR) |
Creatinine is used by doctors to calculate the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of the kidneys. This is important because as the blood creatinine rises, GFR falls and the kidneys’ capacity to clear wastes from the body diminishes. A high GFR (greater than 90) and the absence of protein in the urine indicate normal kidney function.
Renadyl™ | Probiotic for Kidney Health
Renadyl™ is a patented and proprietary probiotics dietary supplement that has been scientifically formulated and clinically tested. Renadyl™ metabolizes nitrogenous waste that has diffused from the bloodstream into the bowel. Nitrogenous wastes are utilized by Renadyl™ as nutrients. As probiotics grow and multiply, they consume more nitrogenous waste and therefore effectively help maintain healthy kidney function. The nitrogenous metabolites are eliminated as solid waste/fecal matter.
